Recap by phillip woo

Momentum Galaxy responded nicely after gaining a clear run after travelling midfield on the fence to overhaul the leaders 30m out for a second win this season. He produced a better effort last start and was rated five points below an opening victory. Favourite Sergeant Pepper had always shaded Fabulous Eight for the lead one-off the fence but found one just too good in the end. He was able to build on a win last start. Fabulous Eight just couldn't get by Sergeant Pepper after vying for the front along the inside from the outset. He has been honest as the day is long without winning this season. Timestorm ran on late to fill the frame without menacing the top three. It was an encouraging run. California Forest made ground late near the inside after biding his time at the rear following a tardy start. It was one his better runs from eight starts following a downgrade. Double Six Pop just held his ground after a prominent run for his new trainer. He's better suited over a longer trip. Super Class kept on OK after a wide trip with cover in midfield from gate 10. He's destined for a downgrade. Viva Mama gave up the chase 500m out after chasing the speed three deep without cover.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (801) - GARDEN ROAD HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Meters

SEE U AGAIN was withdrawn on 5.7.22 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore).

Before being allowed to race again, SEE U AGAIN will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

CALIFORNIA FOREST began awkwardly and lost ground.

FINGERS CROSSED and SUPER CLASS bumped at the start.

FINGERS CROSSED was then crowded for room between SUPER CLASS and VIVA MAMA (M F Poon) which shifted out.

This resulted in all three horses becoming unbalanced.

Following the race, M F Poon stated that after this incident he had to ride VIVA MAMA along for some distance to maintain a forward position and then was not able to cross runners to his inside prior to the first turn which resulted in VIVA MAMA racing three wide and without cover throughout.

He said VIVA MAMA then came under heavy pressure prior to the Home Turn and gave ground in the Straight which he attributed to the horse's tough run tonight.

From the outside barrier, PRECIOUS CHOICE was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 850 Metres, TIMESTORM and MOMENTUM GALAXY raced tight.

Passing the 600 Metres, PRECIOUS CHOICE shifted in and bumped FINGERS CROSSED.

After the 600 Metres, CALIFORNIA FOREST became unbalanced of its own accord and shifted in towards the running rail.

Passing the 50 Metres, MOMENTUM GALAXY shifted in and brushed SERGEANT PEPPER.

Prior to the declaration of weighed-in, the Stewards viewed the video of this incident to establish if any grounds for a protest/objection existed on behalf of the connections of SERGEANT PEPPER.

Having regard to the manner in which the two horses finished the race off in the Straight and the light contact between them close to the finishing line, no further action was taken.

A veterinary inspection of VIVA MAMA immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

MOMENTUM GALAXY and SERGEANT PEPPER were sent for sampling.
